A Very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Now to end with a few jokes .

First Christmas Joke

Three men died on Christmas Eve and were met by Saint Pete r at the pearly gates.
'In honour of this holy season' Saint Pete r said, 'You must each possess something that symbolizes Christmas to get into heaven.
' The first man fumbled through his pockets and pulled out a lighter. He flicked it on. 'It represents a candle', he said.
'You may pass through the pearly gate' Saint Peter said.
The second man reached into his pocket and pulled out a set of keys.
He shook them and said, 'They're bells.'
Saint Peter said 'You may pass through the pearly gates'.
The third man started searching desperately through his pockets and finally pulled out a pair of women's panties.
St. Pete r looked at the man with a raised eyebrow and asked, 'And just what do those symbolize?'
The man replied, 'These are Carols.'
And So The Christmas Season Begins.. />


The lost Bagpiper

As a bagpiper, I was asked by a funeral director to play at a graveside service for a homeless man who had no family or friends.
The funeral was to be held at a cemetery in the remote countryside and this man would be the first to be laid to rest there.
As I was not familiar with the backwoods area, I became lost and being a typical man, did not stop for directions.
I finally arrived an hour late.
I saw the backhoe and the crew who were eating lunch but the hearse was nowhere in sight.
I apologized to the workers for my tardiness and stepped to the side of the open grave where I saw the vault lid already in place.
I assured the workers I would not hold them up for long but this was the proper thing to do.
The workers gathered around, still eating their lunch.
I played out my heart and soul.
As I played the workers began to weep.
I played and I played as if I'd never played before, from Going Home and
The Lord is My Shepherd to Flowers of the Forest.
I closed the lengthy session with Amazing Grace and walked to my car
. As I was opening the door and taking off my coat, I overheard one of the workers saying to another, Sweet Jeezuz, Mary 'n Joseph, I have never seen nothin' like that before and I've been putting in septic tanks for twenty years.


Murphy's' old lady had been pregnant for some time and now the time had come.
He brought her to the doctor and the doctor began to deliver the baby.
She had a little boy, and the doctor looked over at Murphy and said. 'Hey, Murph! You just had you a son,!
'Ain't dat grand, !!' Murphy got excited by this,
but just then the doctor spoke up and said, 'Hold on! We ain't finished yet, !'The doctor then delivered a little girl.
He said, 'Hey, Murph! You got you a daughter, !!!! She is a pretty lil ting, too....'Murphy got kind of puzzled by this and then the doctor said, 'Hold on, we aint got done yet, !'
The doctor then delivered another boy and said, 'Murph, you just had yourself another boy, !'
Murphy said to the doctor, 'Doc, what caused all of dem babies,?'
The doctor said, 'You never know Murph, it was probably something that happened during conception.'
Murphy said, 'Ah yeah, during conception.'
When Murph and his wife went home with their three children, he sat down with his wife and said,
'Mama, you remember dat night that we ran out of Vaseline and we had to use dat dere 3-in-1 Oil.'
She said, 'Yeah, I remember dat night...'Murph said, 'I'll tell you,'s a Bloody good ting we didn't use WD-40.


Little Johnny

A woman answered her front door and found Little Johnny holding a list."Lady," Johnny explained, "I'm on a scavenger hunt, and I still need three grains of wheat, a pork-chop bone and a piece of used carbon paper so I can earn a dollar.""Wow," the woman replied. "Who sent you on such a challenging hunt?""My babysitter's boyfriend."

A smile is a sign of joy.
A hug is a sign of love.
A laugh is a sign of happiness.

Jen's back

G'day to all my friends in blogland and hope your all well wherever you maybe.
I'm very happy to say I'm back. On my last visit to my eye specialist I got a good report, the fluid in my retinas has cleared up, I still have to use drops for another 2 weeks and he (Dr. Nic)has given me the ok to go ahead and get tested for new glasses, hopefully I will only need them for reading and close work - Yippeeeee !!!! . A big thank you to Carol for looking after me and being my driver for many weeks taking me to all my appointments and taking me wherever I wanted to go.

Now on with a few photo's of Peter and Merle's luncheon visit where we all had a lovely day chatting, catching up and filled with lots of laughter. A lovely day was had by all.
Please click on all photo's to enlarge
Peter, Carol, Myself and Merle (Pauline taking photo!)

Getting ready to tucker down, Peter cracking the wine open - Carol cooked a lovely lunch, pumpkin soup, garlic bread, quiche (Egg and Bacon pie for the blokes), chicken and salad, followed by a lovely ginger fluff cake. Was so YUMMMM thanks again Cazz another job well done.

Peter trying to determine Cazz's bra size - or was he just going for a grope!
Merle never arrives empty handed, she bought me a lovely hanging basket
I managed to turn Cazz into a tea totalling, knitting old granny (her words), here she is putting together the knitted squares for her first "Nanna Blankie!" (12 x 14)

Penny always ready to lend a paw.

I knitted the squares, but Cazz had to sew them together for me as I was unable to see to do the fine work. This blanket was requested by Serayha (Cazzs' daughter) - she wanted a mosh posh of colours, bright and cheerful - think I managed to do that ! (16 x 16) 256 squares
Up the stairs to visit the Eye Specialist (Dr. Nic)

Leaving here (Dr Nic's) for the last time

As I'm still finding reading a little difficult, I will slowly get around to your blogs with magnifing glass in hand until my new glasses arrive - I promise ! Thanks for all your well wishes they all mean so much xxxxooooxxxx
